Printdesign

An empty paper is a canvas that can be filled with an infinite variety of designs.
Should your project need flyers, newsletters, books, check out my portfolio and contact me, if you like what you see.

IT-Project Management

In the infamous 'Chaos Report' published in 1995, researchers found that only 16.2% of software projects are completed on-time and on-budget. As a reaction, a new generation of IT experts was educated to prevent this and consequently, in 2012 the same group found that now 39% of IT projects are successful.
I can help your project be amongst these.

Photography

For me, photography started as a hobby, in the meantime I have become confident enough to offer my services as a photographer for events & portraits.
You can check out a selection of my sample pictures in my portfolio.

Advertisement / SEO / Writing

A good website is not necessarily the first to appear in Google search, and a the best page is for naught, if it lacks content.
I can give your website the prominence it deserves.

PC/Mac/Linux Support

If your computer is smoking, or did it decide to go out with a loud bang? Dropped your laptop on the floor? Caught a nasty little virus? Or does it just not behave as it should?
Quick, call for first aid!
